SCP-XXXX, The Empty Thrones


Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to have all entrances cordoned off to the public under the guise of an archaeological expedition. SCP-XXXX is to have surveillance upon it's inside at all times. Personnel are strictly prohibited from interfering or interacting with any SCP-XXXX-1 instances. If the number or status of SCP-XXXX-1 instances undergoes any change, regardless of triviality, Site personnel are to immediately inform senior Foundation officials, who must immediately inform O5 Command.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a large chamber located within the city of Petra. It appears as a circular underground chamber with an architectural style entirely distinct from the rest of the city, which appears similar to the Erikeshan, Sumerian, and ███████ civilizations. The chamber is arranged similar to an Auditorium, but upon each step are plain thrones sculpted of stone. SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-1 instances both appear completely invulnerable to damage.

Some thrones are occupied by a humanoid shape, instances of which are designated SCP-XXXX-1. These shapes vary from being purely human in appearance to having anomalous features, a few of which include horns, tentacles, and consisting of clockwork mechanisms. Some instances exhibit anomalous properties.

The vast majority of thrones are completely empty of any figures.

An incomplete list of anomalous properties SCP-XXXX-1 instances, and the properties they exhibit:

SCP-XXXX-1 Instance Designations Anomalous Properties
SCP-XXXX-1-A Burning constantly. This fire has not been observed to consume any material, and has not been permanently extinguished by any means.
SCP-XXXX-1-B Exhibiting sub-zero temperatures despite no visible cooling system.
SCP-XXXX-1-C Large wounds, as if made by a slashing implement, randomly appear across it's body, and heal within moments of being inflicted.
SCP-XXXX-1-D Distorted appearance as if within a gravitational anomaly capable of bending light. This property does not extend beyond the surface appearance of the SCP-XXXX-1 instance.
SCP-XXXX-1-E It is made of clockwork rather than stone, and appears to be severely damaged. It is visibly torn into several pieces. How these pieces remain attached to form a humanoid appearance is unknown.
SCP-XXXX-1-F It is made of flesh rather than stone, and is covered in eyes, claws, and tentacle-like appendages.
